Interval International has announced the renewal of its long-term affiliation with Tsogo Sun’s Southern Sun Resorts, one of the largest vacation ownership programmes in Southern Africa. The agreement covers six high-quality properties across the region. In addition, Interval will continue to provide a customised package of services, including programme design support and a points-based club reservation service.
“For the last five years, we have enjoyed working with Tsogo Sun at all levels and are very pleased to have renewed our strategic relationship,” said Darren Ettridge, Interval’s senior vice president of resort sales and business development for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia. “We look forward to helping the company build on its success over the coming years.”
“We are delighted to confirm that SunSwop, the exchange division of Tsogo Sun’s Southern Sun Resorts, has renewed its affiliation with Interval International,” said Deon Viljoen director of operations at Tsogo Sun. “Interval’s presence in South Africa has made a huge impact on the industry, and our members are delighted at the service they receive from the Interval International and SunSwop alliance.”
Tsogo Sun’s Southern Sun Resorts include Beacon Island at Plettenberg Bay, Umhlanga Sands and Cabana Beach on the Indian Ocean coast, and Drakensberg Sun in the mountain range from which the resort takes its name. Pine Lake and Sabi River Sun, located close to the renowned Kruger National Park, complete the resort portfolio and are part of Tsogo Sun’s impressive collection of more than 90 hotels and 14 casino and entertainment destinations. The SunSwop programme currently has approximately 25,000 members who own in excess of 41,000 vacation ownership weeks. By the end of this year, all six resorts will have been completely refurbished and upgraded.
